We like the bottles of Starbucks' Frappuccinos that you buy at the grocery, but they cost a lot and use a lot of bottles, so I played around with creating my own at home. They’re cheaper, less wasteful, and healthier (because I know what’s in them) but just as tasty. They’re also really easy to make.
Here’s the basic recipe:
- Make 2 cups of coffee
- Dissolve ½ cup sugar into coffee (You can use less)
- Pour the sweetened coffee into a quart-size glass jar (We use old juice jars)
- Add 2 cups milk (You could also use almond or soy milk)
- Refrigerate over night
- Shake before serving
Voila- a sweet-cold coffee drink is ready for you in the morning!
(You can adjust any of the amounts or ingredients)
